What Treatment Involves
Rehab treatment in Lurgan involves a number of components that can be implemented according to your unique circumstances. If you are in need detox, our clinics offer a medically supervised programme that ensures patient safety at all times. Prescription medications can be used in most cases to help recovering addicts through the withdrawal process.
Upon completion of detox, which takes about seven days, the recovering addict is then introduced to a rehabilitation programme that involves counselling and psychotherapeutic treatments. Examples of some of the treatments a client might receive include:
- cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT)
- group counselling sessions
- group life skills training
- individual meditation and introspection
- work within a 12-step programme.
The beauty of the treatments offered by our clinics is that these can be customised for each client. We offer bespoke treatments because we know every recovering addict is different. What works for you may not work for someone else, and vice versa. We want to make sure each client is treated in a way that is best for him or her.
Several months of aftercare follow the completion of a residential treatment programme. Aftercare essentially picks up where residential rehab leaves off. Is aftercare important? We think so. Statistics have shown that those receiving quality aftercare services are less likely to relapse than those who do not.
